Linux Mandrake lilo problem
Posted on 2000-03-08
I have a compaq deskPro 5100, Win98SE, and Mandrake share the drive I installed both OS's, with Lilo in the MBR, but then I installed PQ's BootMagic, which I like very much, and it over wrote the MBR.
I have tried going into that part of the setup and instead of installing Lilo to the MBR, install it into the first sectors of the Linux partition. This didn't work. I have made the rescue and boot disks, but I am lost as to setting up lilo to boot from the linux parttion rather than the MBR, and using the liloconf, to set it u, rather than blowing the whole thing away to reinstall. How do I rescue this lilo setup?
